SAT Holistic Group Ltd was launched by Janet Maro and Alexander Wostry, Co-Founders of Sustainable Agriculture Tanzania. The "SAT" in SAT Holistic Group Ltd stands for Sustainable Agriculture Tanzania. The "Holistic Group" are the farmer’s networks who have benefited from the NGO, the NGO itself, and strategic investors from the organic movement. There is a fruitful symbiosis between the two entities. SAT NGO is engaged in research and training, whereas SAT Ltd is engaged in the processing and marketing of organic products. The feedback loops created between the two further amplify both entities' impact. Refined knowledge can be shared through SAT's Innovation Accelerator.
The first dividends are expected to be shared for the first time in 2023. This is made possible by farmers who have organized into cooperatives that own joint ventures with SAT Holistic Group Ltd. The social business uses state-of-the-art technology and records every farmer's transactions. This will be the basis used to calculate the share of each project and its respective farmers. Furthermore, the dividends from Janet and Alex are partially transferred to SAT NGO as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), for funding further pioneer projects and to achieve a higher degree of self-sufficiency.
The memorandum clearly states that the company needs to act as a social business. This means achieving social impact and having the principle of "Social Impact First" measured by the company’s social business indicators. The social business philosophy is further enshrined in:
· The linkage to Sustainable Agriculture Tanzania and its Innovation Accelerator, which is constantly fed by the feedback loops between the two entities.
· The incubation of entrepreneurs and companies who are engaged in the local organic market.
· The aim to act as a catalyst for the organic market in Tanzania by pioneering organic products in the country. Endeavoring to reach a critical mass of organic products available, in order to boost the uptake of further organic producers, processors, and shops.
· The horizontal integration of smallholder farmers in the value chain.
· Having smallholder farmers as shareholders, who will hold a minimum of 25% of the shares by the end of 2022. Farmers are engaged in several stages as decision makers.
